First hands-on with Ninja Theory's Hellblade

Ninja Theory has felt like a mercenary of late. Enslaved didn't sell as well as it should have (neither did Heavenly Sword), and so the last five years has been spent 1) making a mobile game for EA-owned publisher Chillingo, 2) trying to re...   read

Star Wars Battlefront's Fighter Squadron mode needs some variation

Thoughts of dogfighting over the surface of the planet Sullust should raise your heartbeat a little bit. It's an exciting prospect. Really, that goes for piloting any vessel in the Star Wars canon through any franchise locale. If only ...   read

Lara Croft GO captures the essence of pure Tomb Raider

The Technomancer gets chased through Mars, is not Total Recall

The Technomancer is not about a man who goes to Mars to have his eyeballs bulge out. Rather, "we watch our hero Zachariah attempts to communicate with Earth, as he is chased by Mars’ illusive secret police, tasked with hunting down t...   read

Ori and the Blind Forest is getting an expansion

Ori and the Blind Forest is one of my favorite games on Xbox One. It looks, sounds, and plays magnificently. I'm surprised and delighted it even got made, and that goes double for its commercial success. The game was "already profitable a w...   read

Halo 5 has some changes that longtime fans will have to get used to

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a little easier on Lara (but still kicks the shit out of her)

Lara Croft has never been the best archaeologist. Carefully digging for hours so as to not damage an artifact wouldn't make for a very good video game. Still, there's a disconnect when she knocks over human skulls that are perched on a ledg...   read

Final Fantasy XV confirmed for 2016 release

Final Fantasy XV's lengthy development time has been long documented. Square Enix's promised strong showing for the next mainline entry this gamescom amounted to a fairly boring trailer, doing nothing to reassure anyone that this game is ac...   read

The Phantom Pain lets you sneak into players' bases and steal their men with wormholes

The Mother Base side of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is detailed enough to necessitate a half-hour demonstration out of gamescom, and I'm loving it. There's a lot to parse, but thoughtful editing and delivery keeps the flood of inf...   read

Kamiya: Scalebound 'not a simple action game that Platinum is known for'
